What are Wall Street analysts saying about Constellation Brands stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Constellation Brands stock:
  • 1. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "STZ remains our top large cap growth idea following our meeting/site visit w/ cannabis industry leader, Canopy Growth (< 40% owned by STZ)."" (12/7/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Constellation Brands surpassed the industry year to date, courtesy of its solid earnings trend, which continued in second-quarter fiscal 2019. Earnings reverted to its 14 quarter long record of positive surprises, after a miss in the previous quarter. Additionally, sales outpaced estimates in 10 out of the last 12 quarters. Higher sales at the beer, and wine and spirits segments as well as strong depletions and shipment volumes in the beer business aided results. Its constant brand-building efforts, acquisitions, investments in digital enablement for e-commerce initiatives and the new ERP platform are added positives. Moreover, management’s raised earnings outlook for fiscal 2019 drives optimism. However, higher marketing expenses and transportation costs have been denting operating margin, which remains a threat to profitability. Stiff competition, higher debt position and taxes are other concerns." (12/7/2018)
  • 3. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We could have said that we were so dazzled by STZ, 2Q report and outlook, and CEO Rob Sands indominable bullishness, that we just couldn’t put words to paper! However, the truth is in the author’s own vineyard, we had 33 tons of grapes to harvest yesterday. While I hate to publish research a day late, this was one report that benefitted from some marinating in the mind before putting words and digits on paper. CEO Rob Sands was truly on fire – declaring: “given Constellation’s leadership position in the high-end U.S. beer market further runway for margin expansion throughout the business, unique leverage to the emerging cannabis space and an attractive valuation, I believe Constellation will continue to be a multiyear double-digit EPS compounder.” This was a beautiful quarter." (10/5/2018)
